Applications for the Global Innovation Fund 2022 are currently open. Global Innovation Fund GIF is an international foundation that collaborates with mission-aligned development agencies to uncover and fund evidence-based innovations that have the potential to improve the lives of millions of the world’s poorest people. Global Innovation Funds accepts submissions on a rolling basis; their application window is always open, with no funding round deadlines.
By taking calculated risks, the GIF fund complement existing development support. To achieve their mission, they use a variety of financial instruments to guide entrepreneurs through their journey to scale. Using a venture-style staged funding approach, more speculative ideas receive lower funding and increased funding following proof of concept and successful testing.
Any social organization, entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, eligible companies, research institutions and even government agencies can apply for the fund.
